Since last week the primary school Julio Sauri Espinosa has been having classes scheduled on Saturdays, as though it were a normal school day, to make up for time lost during the strike. This will consist of a total of eight Saturdays to make up forty hours. Parents who said they could not bring their children on Saturdays were offered the option of having the children depart daily at 12:15pm instead of 11:15am. The primary school Cesar Mendoza scheduled Saturday classes after a meeting with parents. Some parents objected and others accused them of not wanting to get up early on Saturdays, but it was agreed that the classes will begin this weekend and continue throughout October.

 Baltazar Gómez Catzín is president of the fishing cooperative “Por la Justicia Social”, and director of the State Federation of Fishing Cooperatives. He explained that there are no restrictions on fishermen of Isla Mujeres, who are registered, using the fishing camp at Isla Contoy during lobster season, which began in July. He said they are not using it now for practical reasons, such as the cost of fuel and an insufficient number of lobster nearby. In November and December, when the 'nortes' begin, they will usually make use of the camp, because that is when the lobster come out of their caves and 'run'.  He said usually about forty men go to the camp, and as the lobster 'run', the camp reaches a maximum of 60 to 70 fishermen.

PROFEPA ordered the demolition of the (second) pier at Avalon reef 

Ordena Profepa demolición de muelle de Avalon Reef

 The Avalon Reef Hotel began building a second bridge, and the manager of a nearby property asked to see the permits. When the hotel was unwilling, Santiago Robles Martinez filed a complaint with PROFEPA, the environmental authority, because the bridge being built in the Federal Zone would affect the beach club Fenix Lounge. PROFEPA ordered its immediate removal, because there was no permission sought or given. The Avalon Reef tore down the work and continued with repairs on their old dock, which serves as the only access to the property.

Undocumented men received aid
Indocumentados reciben ayuda+] Ver mas
On Friday a group of six undocumented Cubans were arrested by officers of the Judicial Police, in coordination with the Navy and municipal police, when they were spotted on the beach near the irregular colonia of Guadalupana. Witnesses say there were a total of eight, and the authorities secured four while they were in the water, and four ran south, and two have not been found. According to the Cubans, they encountered an island fisherman offshore who recommended they go to Isla Mujeres as the closest place to find food and water, because they had been at sea for twenty days and were exhausted and hungry. They had enough fuel to reach the United States, and the boat was not your average 'balsero' vessel. It was in good condition, with a roof, and a car engine which had been adapted.

Healthcare options in Mexico
HERE is an article in English by an expat who uses the IMSS for healthcare, with private docs and a catastrophic coverage plan. IMSS insurance fees are ~ $625usd (~7500pesos) yearly per family, with no copays or deductibles. (There are some things it doesn't cover at first, whose coverage is phased in.)

One of my friends & one of my Isla Artists, Bessie Hamaker rescued these three Isla doggies yesterday. MamaCita is in rough shape but she has taken such good care of her pups, CeCe, the little black female & Bubba, the white & black male. Even as malnourished as she is MamaCita wags her tail & smiles while you pet her. The puppies are so sweet. They are now all on a road to a healthy life. Once they have been spayed/neutered & have all the shots, the pups will be ready for adoption. The Mama will need to gain some weight & strength as well as being spayed & given her shots & then she too will be ready for adoption. Feel free to contact Alison Sawyer Current if you want one of these Isla Pups to be part of your forever family!!!
